I am in the early stages of working with programing. Everyone I talk to around here who is in programing knows how to do the hard stuff but everyone of them said they did not have to start off using basic.
I am trying to make that numbers game. I can get it to loop however I can not get it to stop the loop and it wants to keep going. I have posted the code below. If someone can help me please let me know. thank you

Try the following -

``````do while yournumber = secretnum and counter <=7
counter=counter+1

compute
display

gameover
loop``````
